A Better Way To Attach Chicken Wire Fencing

     Keeping YOUR chickens in YOUR backyard as an urban homesteader, can be a daunting task. With the use of a few basic tools and some chicken wire fencing, you can "almost" completely rest assured your hens wont be the ones that
~flew the coop~!
Before we get started here's the tools you will need. I have an air compressor which makes all my daily chores go much smoother, but a regular heavy stapler will work to!

 Chicken wire or hardware cloth.
Sheet metal/ aviation snips.
Stapler and a bunch of staples.
Compressor with enough hose to reach your project area.

     Measure desired area you will be installing your fencing at. Strength out and flatten your chicken fencing on the ground being careful not to cut yourself on the sharp edges.

     Spread it across the are you will be covering and start stapling at one end shooting staples from top to bottom then moving in columns from left to right. I usually skip over about 6 openings to the next staple.

Happy Backyard Chickens!

Following these simple steps will give you a neat looking installation even a chicken will appreciate!

  1. Unquestionably imagine that that you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be
    on the net the simplest thing to understand of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other
    folks think about worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. I use some chicken wire fencing in Calgary. It's really handy and adapts easily to different uses.
